If you want peace, tranquillity and 1st class accomodation stay at the Boat house. This year's bonus is an M&S food hall just 10 mins away at the Bridge of Don. Even thought this place is in the heart of the countryside the dawn chorus does not disturb you.The views from all of the windows are spectacular throughout the day.
Spent a peaceful couple of days at the boathouse. Beautifully finished accomodation and deserted beach. Bliss.
Right at the end of the road stands this lovely little cottage. Every detail has been carefully designed to a very high standard. The gorgeous port hole windows are amazing.
The bathroom is the best we've seen so far, two choices of shower head, and a very large beautiful room with plenty of showering and changing space.
Fully equipped with washing machine and drier in separate room linking kitchen to bathroom which is wonderful as you cant hear it when its in use.
Beautiful view out to sea on a nice day. We had a mixture of foggy and sunny days which was a lovely contrast.
The owner is fabulous and is only seen if you require her. Just across the driveway. Lovely and friendly, and excellent at assisting with directions etc.
We stayed for 3 nights on this occasion, and plan to stay longer on our next visit to Scotland.
The wildlife is fantastic. Being right next to some enormous fields on one side, with a track which leads down to the beach. I saw numerous rabbits immediately outside the kitchen window where you have the view right out across the countryside.
Outside there is a grass area to the rear with seating. We saw a badger on our bit of garden, not even 4 meters away from us, but this was after midnight. I plan to return and do a late night nature watch. The track seems abundant with wildlife which crosses from one side to the other between the flowering yellow hedgerow on each side.
Immediately across from the bungalow, there is a field with sheep and ponies which was nice.
We took a mobility step for our old Labrador, which was not needed as there were no steps, but this did come in really handy to stand on infront of the living room window, so that you could see further out to sea. There is hedging immediately opposite the front of the cottage, infront of the living room window, and our little step just lifted you high enough to see more clearly over the hedges and out to sea in the distance.
Bedroom is extremely comfortable, plenty of space, and wonderful heating too.
The wifi was the best we've ever used, so fast, and we were able to use both of our computers comfortably on top of the kitchen breakfast bar with the two stools. Wish ours was that fast at home!!
The design inside is beautiful. Very modern light and airy. Heating throughout was fantastic and extremely easy to use. individual control on each heater. Press it and it instantly comes on or off. turn the dial for temp. Simple.
A gorgeous cottage, just a shame its so far from us. Next time we go to Scotland we will rebook it, without hesitation.
Thank you so much for being so kind and helpful during our stay. Best wishes to you and your lovely bundle of joy who it was a pleasure to meet when I asked to.
Hopefully we shall be up again next Spring.
Just had a weekend in this immaculate doggy friendly cottage.
Few treats bought at the nearby M and S Food Store .. including sausages for the wuffs :)
Would definitely stay again
Once again we've had a fantastic time.Thank you both. This is our perfect hideaway and great for our wee dog Poppy who had an absolute ball on the beach. This accomodation is far enough out of the way but 5 minutes in the car to the village of Balmedie where you can stock up on all of your needs. There are plenty of places nearby for eating out or a short drive into the city of Aberdeen. We will be back for sure! Absolutely love this place.
